    Good game and an unexpected win honestly. Would like to think we can repeat this at Burnley but don't really expect so. Set pieces are going to be a huge problem there.

    Have we seen anything like this in the history of football? 2.33 PPG against the top teams, 0.92 PPG against the rest of the league. From a general perspective, it's astonishing, what he did.

    Being inconsistent against the weaker teams means to win some games, draw some and lose some, not to fail to win the majority of them. Just thought I'd put it out there.
  4. Ozil, China, Arsenal, PL, Hypocrisy...

    Dude, most Chinese people never have asked for freedom of speech to such a degree that they are free to denounce the country's regime, that's what I'm saying. Chinese people are "low maintenance" in this regard. And if all of these comes at the risk of stability and changing their current way...

    I tell him to get a grip because I don't agree with his view (way too extreme and based on tons of false perceptions). Does that mean I don't understand why he feels so? You present a narrative and act like it's a universal one and applies to all countries. If that's not narrow-mindedness and a...

    Did I say there's no bias there? No shit there's bias, it's from a state media. Problem is there's two extreme versions of the story that paint only one side in good light respectively, and common sense would tell you there would be some degree of truth in both stories. But you just choose to...

    Check out "Fighting Terrorism in Xinjiang" on YouTube, a recent documentary by CGTN with tons of never-seen-before graphic footages recorded at the scene of terrorist attacks. Bask yourself in the opposite agenda and try to make sense of what's really happening in Xinjiang (make sure you check...

    The Chinese people are not ignorant of what happened, especially not with the 1989 incident as lots of people on the scene travelled from all over the country and have been telling the story to their children and grandchildren. From my experience most have a moderate view and just refuse to...

    Most of them would know about both stories and a lot would probably tell you other versions. Some might have first-hand experiences and could tell you stories you wouldn't hear from the media. Some would probably get irritated though. You should be able to ask around as long as you make sure...

    At this moment in time they wouldn't have it any other way and you should visit China and see it for yourself if you don't believe that. I get the feeling that your thinking is if the Chinese people think and behave opposite to a westerner would do it's because of state propaganda. This is pure...

    Like I said I'm not getting into these tired debates about what the Chinese government did or not did and what they should do. I do not have an extreme stance on this either so no need to act like I'm a Chinese bot or something. I was debunking your post saying that the Chinese people have no...

    The Wiki page doesn't say that people are imprisoned in China for browsing and posting on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.. To believe that is just absurd. Only when one posts clear anti-party/anti-China messages do they put themselves at risk with the government. Think of the CCP as Sir Alex...

    The amount of people (especially younger ones) that use a VPN and have access to Internet outside of the "GFW" is much, much larger than you'd imagine. It works the other way around too, probably even more so. Westerners rarely ever get to see the perspectives of the average Chinese people...

    If we put aside all the debates over what's right or even what has really happened, purely speaking in cultural terms, the reality is that separatists are persona non grata from a Chinese point of view just like racists are in the mainstream western world. Just today we had posters (mostly...
  15. Averaging 1.0 points against the bottom 13 teams

    Even with little individual brilliance in the team it shouldn't be this bad. One point per game is just appalling. Coming off the back of two huge victories this time, player confidence is not an excuse either. And what's with our corners? If we got a corner you might as well think we got a...
